    Eoghan though of asking for another ale, but the conversation of the two ladies seemed important, and his curiosity towards it was enough that he forgot whatever he might have been thinking... except for the wolfscent. Wolfscent is not easy to forget, but it sure could wait.

    The talk of finding lost family made Izakar choke on his food for a minute as his throat tightened. Visions of his lost wife and daughter flashing across his line of sight. He snapped back to reality in time to keep from coughing out the contents of his mouth. He stayed quiet, listening to the conversation, hoping it turned out well for the girl. There was too little happiness in this world for him to interrupt the potential for some to find its way out.

    The meal was filling, though not amazing. Izakar got a pint of ale to wash it down and relaxed, trying to just enjoy being around people again. It was not easy, as he had the constant feeling something terrible was going to happen anywhere he was.

    With a parting "shout if you need me" to the young woman, leif returned to his compatriots, currently in the middle of a knife game.

    Zella looked at the woman, trying not to show the surprise on her face, "Meier iz my moser's maiden name."

    She pushed her braid behind her shoulder and thought for a moment as she glanced up at her brother in the corner, "Sven, kan you please get moser?"

    Sven looked uneasy but after receiving a glare from his sister he nodded and left the tavern quickly, not to take any longer than necessary. As Zella waited she let her hair out of it's braid and cleaned herself up a little, before attending to the people in the tavern again.

    It was not long before her mother and Sven walked back through the door. Her mother was older, but held herself as a proper woman should, not how Zella carried herself. Her hair still had streaks of blonde, though gray was taking over, and was neatly pinned up as if she was heading to a fancy ball. The dress she wore, though handmade, was clean despite her cleaning the house and working on a dusty farm, she spoke German as she approached, "Sven said you needed me. What is wrong?

    In German back Zella responded, "This girl speaks of her mother. Leah Meier. Do you know of her?"

    Her mother's eyes looked pained as she looked away for a moment to regain her composure then back at the girl before speaking in broken English, "Your moser is Leah Meier?" She sighed but did not wait for a response, "Leah is my sister. I have not heard from her in many years. I did not know che had a child. Please...tell me vat has happened?"

    Shia was utterly flabbergasted!! She never expected the first person she would meet would be her mother’s own sister! She explained to the women how her mother passed close to nine years ago from an illness. She told them how her mother always wanted to come back to see her sister and her parents but being so far and with money being tight it was just never possible. She explained she had a happy and fulfilling life and her father hated that they had to live so far, but being a soldier made him travel far and wide and they finally settled in the mountains of Scotland. Once he left the army they relished their solitary lives in the mountains and made do with what they could.

    “I simply can’t believe I made it here and found you all,” Shia had tears in her eyes. “My mother thought of you all so fondly and I came here to honor her last wish to finally meet the family she left behind”. Shia noticed the woman speaking the very broken English resembled her mother and even Shia’s own hair color matched the blonde streaks of the woman’s hair.

    Shia also could not help to notice how the man who mentioned the wolfscent kept eyeing her curiously

    Eoghan was surprised at the girl's story. He got so distracted he didn't note he was staring, so he quickle looked some other way. He could find out about that smell later, it was not very important, but he was very curious about it.

    "Would it be rude to ask for another ale now?" Eoghan asked, to nobody in particular, maybe too low for anybody to even hear him.

    Zella listened to the girl's story as she and her mother spoke and she filled ales around the house. She had no idea she had a cousin, let alone she would find her way here. It was strange, but her mother seemed pleased and welcomed her into open arms, "Vat now?" she asked to no one in particular.

    As this woman welcomed Shia into open arms, Shia realized how much she has missed having family around. As Shia returned the embrace and embraced her newly found relatives she felt extremely happy. She sat back down to finish the meal the strange man was kind enough to purchase for her. Although Shia was happy to have finally accomplished her mother's final wish, she could not shake the feeling of foreboding. Somewhere, in a very far off distance of the forest, she could hear the rumbling of something huge.

    Leif was drunk. Too drunk to remember which side of maplethorn he had rubbed down already, so he decided to do both. Again.

    He often got this way after a night of drinking, and it did his sword great good; he had already oiled and polished both sides 4 times. He was about halfway through the Neibelungenleid, at his favorite parts he would stand on his chair and recite the poem loudly, often drifting between English, danish, and German. the story told of a great sword, given to a man by odin himself, that brought great power and great misfortune to the family. the hero Sigfried was the heir to this sword, re-forging the shards to make a sword named gram. with this mighty sword he would go on to slay a dragon, old and poisonous. at the mention of Fafnir the dragon, his chest went tight and his legs threatened to buckle.

    Suddenly overcome with an urge, he returned to his room to make sure his runes were undisturbed. they had not been touched, and he took his hand into the bag to draw a casting.

    "ye gods..." he muttered to himself, hoping he was wrong Leif drew again.

    Izakar had watched the reunion silently, as he did much of the room. There was plenty of other noise to compensate for his silence, and while he wouldn't say that he had enjoyed to chaos, it did him good to be around simple humanity again. The fighter's guild was as loud as he had expected, but they seemed a well mannered bunch. Taking an ale himself, he retired for the night, hoping the comfort of a bed would aid him in his sleep. He pleasently dozed off, warm and clean for the first time in months.

    He was thrown out of his bed by the sound of a reptilian roar and a solid impact against the building. He knew immediately what was happening as the flickering light of a fire cast shadows across his room. Izakar scrambled for his armor, praying his time for revenge had finally arrived.
